Small group studio lighting workshop results

Small group studio lighting workshop

I ran a small group studio lighting workshop on Saturday 12th July with 4 photographers. Leading up to the session I’d booked in Blue Sapphire to model for me, we’ve worked together many times before and she had also done my last tuition workshop.

Friday night

Unfortunately the friday night before before the workshop I received a text message from Sarah saying she was in A&E with 2 fingers facing the wrong way! So there was no way she would be able to drive, let alone model. We were both disappointed, but these things happen.

This meant it was about 9:00pm and I had no model for a workshop happening on the next day. I contact a few local models but they were busy or booked. Then I remembered Button, who used to live right next door to me before they moved. So I called her and luckily she was happy to re-arrange her plans for me and agreed to model for the day. Luckily I’ve worked with Button many times so I knew she would do a great job and work well with the photographers. So Button was booked in and I could relax knowing I had a model for the day.

I remember some years ago I had a model phone me to cancel a shoot whilst she was in hospital, she’d been rushed in with appendicitis and she was about to be operated on. She apologised and said she would not be able to make the shoot, that model was Michelle Monaghan. You can see her appendectomy scar to this day :-)

These things happen and with the best intentions in the world sometimes things don’t go according to plan. I’m sure Sarah would have much preferred to be shooting with me than spending 6 hours in A&E.

Delegate’s images

Below are a few of the images taken during the workshop. Thank you to Andy and Dieter for allowing me to use their images. During the workshop we covered a wide range of lighting styles from:

  • Hard light
  • Soft light
  • Single lights
  • Direct light
  • Indirect light
  • Flash and constant lighting
  • Multiple lights
  • Using gels
  • Using bounces and reflectors
  • Using flags
  • Using grids

You can see the differing styles here which I love to see. Each photographer had almost the same lighting setup for most of the day, but still took completely differing images. The last session was a free session where each photographer had to choose a concept and a lighting pattern that we had done during the day. They then set up the lights, directed and worked with the model on the concept of their choice. I love this session as it always throws up wonderful images and creativity – this session was no exception.

A few random edits

I spent this morning doing some edits from a few previous shoots. I reviewed images that I’ve either not got round to editing or looked good when I’d gone back to them and felt they merited being edited. So in no particular order, here are some new edits for you to enjoy.

Some new edits

I thought you might like to see a few recent edits I’ve just completed. These were from two shoots, one with Emma Green and another with Abigail Toyne who was 8 months pregnant. I’m sure you will be able to tell who is who.

Both girls were shot for content for my member’s pay-to-view website www.Erotica-babes.com so they will have exclusive content appearing on there too – oh I do spoil you all.

Pregnancy Bondage

I have had a few requests to see the bondage work I did with pregnant models and although most of the shots are in earlier blog posts I thought it was worth pulling them all together into a single post to make them easier to find. I’ve also added an image that whilst is not strictly bondage, it does have some pegs and a wrist-cage which I really like.

Is it dangerous to the baby and mother?

A few people have commented on images I have posted concerned that it was dangerous for the mother and baby. Bondage should always be done with feedback from the model, the ropes were no tighter than an elasticated waistband. Model safety comes first, I’ve done a few bondage pregnancy shoots now and all mothers and babies have gone on to have natural and uncomplicated births with healthy newborns.

Angel Long shoot

Working with a pornstar

I photographed Angel Long last weekend shooting for my portfolio content and for my pay-to-view website www.Erotica-Babes.com which contains more explicit content. Angel is a well-known pornstar and she was great to work with, easy-going and very hot when the camera is turned on her. She is very experienced not only in terms of modelling, but also in producing content. It was good opportunity to work with someone who also produces their own content and we had some great conversations about generating ideas, how we did things and our differing approaches. I feel we learnt things from each as well as taking some great images.

Dual Output

I thought you might like to see some of the images we shot over the weekend and unusually I’ve included both outputs; e.g. those destined for print sales on www.johntisbury.co.uk and those which will be uploaded to www.Erotica-Babes.com. Why include both? Well I thought you might like to see the style and approach for my more explicit work, although the samples below are not that explicit, I chose the more tame versions to include in this post. You will see that I use slightly more light and shoot mostly in colour, so there is a difference in style, however I hope you can still see my underlying lighting approach and I aim to light the models to the same high standard as my normal erotic content.

Working with a new model…

I arranged a shoot with a new model, well new to me anyways, ChinaStar. She had been badgering me for ages to shoot together and I finally caved in and we organised a shoot. You might be wondering why I was reluctant to shoot with her, well the simple reason is currently I’m tending to book shoots with the object of having dual output; content for my own print portfolio and content for my more explicit member’s pay-to-view website www.Erotica-Babes.com.  As a result I book models who work to higher levels than full frontal nude (art-nude). So in this instance we were planning to shoot content for my print portfolio which meant shooting to full-frontal nude as a maximum level.

Ideas and the number of shots

When I shoot for my own print portfolio I tend to do short bursts of say 25-35 images and then move onto another idea and setup. I do take less shots if the idea stinks and has no legs! However, rarely do I take more than 35 images on an idea, there are a couple of reasons for this:

  • How many images can you use from an idea or set, 2 or 3 at most so it’s wasting time shooting more when you have your 2 or 3 that you are happy with.
  • The model may get bored and therefore has a tendency to repeat poses and looks.
  • Changing ideas and sets frequently keeps the session fresh and interesting for both parties.
  • New stimuli or props, sets and ideas allows both parties to keep being creative; routine and repetitive actions stifle creativity.

Below are some of the images from our 4 hour session, as you can see they are all from different sets apart with 3 being the most from any one set/idea.
